Erm, perhaps that would be because you rang up before the 1st October, when the regulations changed...

(P.S. - May have found replacement engine for Greyhound - looking forward to showing you which Ribcrafts she can beat!!! )

Jim,

My problem with them was their total lack of flexibility at the time. We all knew the system was changing and so I thought it would have made sense if they had said just hold on for a month. As it was they said to me that it would be December before they became free (The licence), therefore if I wanted to keep a radio on my boat I would have to buy the licence. Notwithsatnding I'd just paid for one anyway for the boat I sold. Now it turns out the new "Free Date" is the beginning of this month. I know its only £20 but you show me someone who throws £20 away and I'll show you someone who has more money than sense.

By the way best of luck with the power replacement and hurry up.

Point taken. If I was in the same position it would probably have upset me a little too.

Waiting for seller to respond via e-mail, then it will be most likely a trip to Bristol! The 90hp I was watching on eBay got withdrawn from sale...
